Opti-Red™ Developed by Lallemand Red Wine

For round and smooth tannins Add to must or toward the end of fermentation Product Declaration Safety Datasheet Opti-Red® is a unique natural yeast preparation that undergoes a specific refining process resulting in a high level of polyphenol-reactive yeast cell wall polysaccharides. Opti-Red® is used at the beginning of red wine fermentations to obtain fuller bodied, more color stable, smooth palate wines. Using Opti-Red® in the must provides early polysaccharide availability for the complexing with polyphenols as soon as they are released and diffused. This early complexing results in red wines with more stable color, rounder mouthfeel and better harsh or green tannin integration. Opti-Red® can be used alone or in conjunction with enological macerating enzymes such as Lallzyme EX™. Using Opti-Red® towards the end of fermentation allows the winemaker to shape harsh polyphenols into smoother more approachable tannins. Dosage recommendation: Add Opti-Red® to the must at 227 g/ton (0.5 lb/ton) or 30 g/hL (2.4 lb/1000 gal) towards the end of fermentation. For more information please contact our distributor.
Opti-White™ Developed by Lallemand White Wine

Rosé Wine

For Mouthfeel, color & aroma protection Add to must or toward the end of fermentation Product Declaration Safety Datasheet Opti-White® is a specific inactivated yeast with high antioxidant properties. Its application in white wines is patent pending. Using Opti-White® on the juice at the beginning of fermentation results in rounder mouthfeel and greater aromatic complexity in white wines. As its unique properties protect against oxidation of phenols and aromas, Opti-White® contributes to better color preservation and the aromatic freshness of white wines. Yeast cell wall components from Opti-White® will be solubilized during fermentation and aging. Mostly mannoproteins, these polysaccharides will have a very positive impact on mouthfeel, bringing more roundness to the wine. Their action will enhance the benefits of autolysis following alcoholic fermentation. Dosage recommendations: Add Opti-White® to the juice at 30-50 g/hL (2.4-4 lb/1000 gal) for a round mouthfeel contribution, antioxidative color protection and aromatic freshness. Add Opti-White® towards the end of fermentation at 20-30 g/hL (1.6-2.4 lb/1000 gal) for mouthfeel contribution and better integration of wood and alcohol.

Optilees Developed by Lallemand Red Wine

White Wine

Specific inactivated yeast rich in polysaccharides for silky and voluptuous wines Near the end of fermentation or post fermentation Product Declaration Safety Datasheet Opti-LEES™ is a specific inactivated yeast developed and produced from a strain selected for its autolysis behavior and polysaccharides release. Applied towards the end of alcoholic fermentation, Opti-LEES™ helps the management of wine aging on lees, enabling a better control of lees quality and a quicker “aging” effect thanks to the release of polysaccharides content. Moreover a fraction of low molecular weight polysaccharides was characterized, which explains the impact observed on sweetness perception (From Fernando Zamora, Entretiens Scientifiques Lallemand, 2011).

OptiMUM White™ Developed by Lallemand White Wine

Rosé Wine

For aromatic intensity and longevity in white and rosé wines Added early during fermentation Product Declaration Safety Datasheet OptiMUM-White is a new, specifi c natural yeast derivative rich in antioxidant properties (glutathione) and polysaccharides. Specific inactivated yeast rich in glutathione (GSH rich SIY) were developed for the protection of the quality of white and rosé wines against oxidation phenomena responsible for colour browning and loss of aromas. This innovation was first introduced by Lallemand (Patent N°WO/2005/080543) in 2003. Since then, our knowledge and experience has been enriched by several trials under various vintage conditions. More recently the production process of these GSH-rich SIY was optimized by Lallemand in order to improve the TRUE glutathione content and as a result Lallemand has replaced OptiWhite with OptiMUM-White. OptiMUM-white has nearly double the TRUE glutathione level when compared to its predecessor OptiWhite. • Added to the juice at the beginning of alcoholic fermentation, the unique properties of OptiMUM-White protect against oxidation. • In terms of aromatic quality, the wine better expresses and preserves the thiols and esters after one year of bottle aging. • Contributes to and enhances wine complexity and has a smoothing effect to bring more roundness to the wine.
